's shoulders. this was his legacy law. hard not to look at this and go, how were you not watching this every step of the way and making sure that it went at least better than this? i think that was, you know, as i said earlier, what many critics said when we were going into obamacare this is quite a bit for you guys to bite off. do you think you can handle it? turns out know, no, they couldn't. that to me is big problem that he is not taking responsibility for it. bill: on that point too, darrell issa told me two dae the website will exceed a billion dollars in the end. everything all-in will be more than a billion dollars, but placing the blame on congress for getting in his way, byron of reforming washington, what's up? >> well, you know this is something that democrats have done for a long time, not really placing blame on congress but places blame on the opposition party, republicans in congress for doing this. so we've heard this from the president a whole lot. what i really this is most interesting about the interview he does talk aaout a cumbersome, slow, redundant federal bureaucracy
